CHAPTER ELEVEN

strange for her to risk employing them ; others of whose qualities she had already formed a good opinion.
It was several hours later before she had finished with the wounded or before Rodney remembered to ask where she was. He sent for her just as she had finished bandaging the last man. When she came on deck, she realized that the ship was rolling badly and that the waves were breaking over the decks, but even in that short time the remaining crew of the Santa Perpetua had worked miracles and the main deck was cleared of many of the traces of the fight.
The boatswain and his mates were still splicing the rigging and the carpenter was at work, but the sailmaker had already set new sails for those which were too tattered to be left aloft. It must have been hard work, against the heave and pitch of the ship, but they had managed it ; and now with the swell leaping and rolling under them and the spray soaking all those who remained on deck, the only real danger lay from the fact that the crew was almost too small to bring the Santa Perpetua into port.
As Lizbeth was helped across the deck and had reached the safety of the after cabin, Rodney came running out, almost colliding with her in his speed.
" Silence!" he shouted at her, though she had not spoken. "Do you hear anything?"
It was difficult to hear anything, Lizbeth thought, above the shriek of the wind, the splash of the waves and the creaking of the ship's timbers. But a seaman who had heard Rodney's question answered.
" 'Tis guns, Sir; guns t' the sou' of us!"
Lizbeth could hear them now and they seemed for a moment an echo of those which had rung in her ears a few hours ago.
" It's the Sea Hawk!" Rodney exclaimed. "I would know the sound of her thirty-pounders anywhere. 'Tis the Sea Hawk and she is finishing off the Spanish galleons."
It was a guess of course, but a guess that was proved right when just before dusk fell the Sea Hawk caught up with them. Rodney had heaved to and waited with an anxiety which he had managed to conceal from everyone but Lizbeth, who knew only too well the signs of strain around his eyes and mouth.
